    this is just a throw out idea.
    the homepage link on users profiles , wondered if that should be tied
    also to being a vip/donor as new members can technically promote there
    product without ever paying anything at all and still garner sales from
    the link, bhw is a business and we need vip 97$ + 30$ for a sales thread
    to promote services on bhw - shouldnt yellow members be stopped adding
    links to things they sell on there home page or location as a work round?

    I don't like the idea of removing the home page URL option for yellow members entirely, but I get what you're saying about them offering services.

    I'll ask the other moderators what they think of this later, but prohibiting non-Jr. VIPs from posting home page URLs that lead directly to sales forms and service pages sounds like a good place to start.

    If someone links to their home page and there's an affiliate link on the destination page, then I can remove it. But that's about all I can do for now.

    thats what i meant mate we all see alot of new member link via home page to small
    products services ect - so i was curious if disabling links there for new members
    was a good idea to stop them getting around no vip thing

    i was only referencing this to none vips/donors
    i see this rule on bhw by DD rule reference no selling outside of the marketplace.

    i would just assume as a none payed seller - if you dont pay your donor fee
    or vip fee, as a regular member surely they shouldnt be allowed to have there
    product for sale in there home page url of bhw as that just stops some ever
    bothering to pay to sell there stuff on bhw as they can jump free traffic from
    there home page url to there product and bhw looses 97$ + 30$
    for those who use that as a way round it. thats bhw lost revenue

    makes sense to make it a requirement of being vip/donor
    to only be allowed to advert a service url on there homepage url
    where as non payed members cant
